Narrative:
Tiger Moth N9244 was built to contract 778402/38 by The De Havilland Aircraft Co. Ltd. at Hatfield and was awaiting collection in September 1939. After a period of MU storage it was taken on charge by 4 EFTS at Brough in 1940. It sustained Cat.R damage as a result of the wind damage on 6th December 1940 and after inspection on 12th December 1940 by 60 MU it was sent away for repair in works passing into MU storage on completion of the repair. The rest of it's RAF history is very vague. It was taken on charge by 613 Squadron as a 'hack' aircraft on and unspecified date, it was later recorded as being on charge with Ibsley Station Flight. It was then placed into long term MU storage and put up for sale in 1946.
